Homestake Resource Corporation (TSXV:HSR,FWB:B6IH) has been notified by Agnico Eagle Mines Limited of its plans for a $3 million exploration program in 2014, including +7,500 meters of core drilling, at the Homestake Ridge property in northwestern British Columbia. The program is set to commence in early July.
